Ceremonies have been held across Sussex to remember service personnel who have died during conflicts.

Parades and services to mark Remembrance Day took place in towns including Brighton, Hastings, Eastbourne, Chichester and Worthing.

The crew of an American bomber that crashed at Butts Brow near Beachy Head in 1944 are due to be remembered later.

In June a granite monument to the men who died serving with Bomber Command was installed on the cliffs.

The names of members of men from Crowborough who were killed during World War I and World War II were also read out at St John the Evangelist church in the town.

A bugler sounded the Last Post before members of the congregation observed two minutes' silence. Children from the Sunday school then laid a wreath inside the church.
